  • That is a very interesting point you brought up. "Without knowing all the facts." This is poor reporting by the mercury. I would have expected more details and more of a story. I noticed how quick you all were to gang up on getalife however he did make some good points although poor timing and appaulingly put.

  • Our thoughts go out to Chewie's mum for a full recovery; the poor lady must be very shocked as well as badly injured. As a result of an injury I've been walking with a stick for the last few weeks and have seen just a little of how 'less mobile' people are treated by the greater public. Most people of all ages are considerate and helpful but a significant minority, perhaps sensing a weakness, seem almost to take advantage of my disability to make their own way about. One stout couple walking arm in arm almost literally 'biffed' me into the road from a narrow pavement while others have had me walk into the road around them, their children or dogs or push though doors in front of me. Some drivers make no concession at all and will see me standing 'disabled' in the rain rather allow that extra time for me to cross a road - that's if they even see me as they speed by. Sad to say the occasional 'mobility scooter' driver is no better - I guess the same percentage of 'Might is Right' applies to these as well.

  • Mobility scooters need banning from roads. In most cases now they are not used for the purpose they were meant to serve and are simply a means for the too fat and idle to get around cheaply!

  • Getalife, someone is seriously injured and this is the comment you make. One day you may need a scooter yourself. Empty vessels make the most noise. You certainly prove that saying.
